AllGov France Launched

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of AllGov France, the first expansion of AllGov outside the United States. Like allgov.com, allgov.fr is built on a foundation of hundreds of trustworthy, well-researched articles about a wide variety of government departments and their leaders. On top of this foundation we are adding daily news that concentrates on policy, but also includes a healthy dose of the odd and unusual.
 
AllGov France is headed by editor Guillaume Serina and staffed by a dozen freelance journalists, all of whom are French citizens based in France. Soon all content on the site will be mirrored in English.
 
It is our intention to continue adding AllGovs for the government of every nation in the world.
 
In June we will be launching AllGov California, the first of 50 state AllGovs.
 
We look forward to comments and suggestions from site users.

Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve: Who Is Jerome “Jay” Powell?

Trump is placing yet another multimillionaire in a position of power by naming Powell—whose $112 million net worth makes him the richest person at the Fed—to serve as the next chair of the Federal Reserve. Trump’s cabinet—which includes two billionaires and 11 multimillionaires—is the wealthiest in history, so Powell should fit right in. In 2011, Powell focused on persuading Congress to raise the federal debt ceiling at the same time that Trump was publicly pushing in the opposite direction.   read more

Danies served as management officer and chargé d’affaires in Belize, during and after Hurricane Mitch in 1998, when he used his authority to declare a disaster in order to allow U.S. aid to begin flowing. From 2011 to 2014, Danies served as deputy Haiti special coordinator, helping his native land recover from the devastating earthquake of January 2010.
